Foundations Software

Please look at the information and related sources for Foundations in the publications or technical guidance links. Or, post a question in the Geotechnical Forum.


Allpile - Used for pile foundation analysis. Includes uplift, axial, lateral and group piles.

A-Pile - Determines axial, ultimate pile capacity.

AXILTR - Basically for drilled shafts, and calculates overburden, uplift downdrag, and displacement. Accounts for swelling and consolidating soils

COM622 - Program that solves for deflection and bending moment in laterally loaded piles.

Driven - FHWA program used for driven pile capacities. Does not seem to work well for small piles. This is a free program from the FHWA website.

FB-Pier - Analysis for pier foundations.

GRLWEAP - Pile analysis based on installation data.

L-Pile - Determines lateral displacement of piles.

MUT1D - Thermal analysis of building and road foundation systems.

QULT - Bearing capacity analysis for shallow foundations

Spile - FHWA program used for driven pile capacities that precedes Driven. This is a free program from the FHWA website.

TempW - Foundation design in permafrost conditions. Includes frost and thaw penetration.

TTI - Analysis of pile driving by the wave equation

WEAP - Wave equation analysis for piles driven by impact hammers, diesel hammers and air/steam hammers
